In 1999, I got my Master degree in Environmental Sciences at the University of Granada. During my Ph D I had the opportunity to visit the Istituto Italiano di Idrobiologia (Pallanza, Italy) and the Institute of Biology (Odense, Denmark), where I decided to stay later on as a Post Doc. In 2004, I got my Ph D degree (with the special mention of the European Doctorate) in sediment and water interactions in eutrophic shallow lakes. After that, I got a Post Doctoral grant from the Spanish Ministry of Education and Science for staying at the Institute of Biology (Denmark), for 2 years under the supervision of Prof. H.S. Jensen and F. Ø. Andersen. During that stay, I have been especially interested in lake water restoration. In particular, I focused my interest on the chemical processes which interfere in the precipitation of Phosphorus by adding aluminium salts and on quantifying for how long will the adsorption properties of Aluminum salts extend after addition to different lake waters. In February 2007, University of Granada gave me a Reincorporation Contract (“Plan Propio”) for studying the impact of exogenous disturbances in the sedimentation and resuspension processes in El Gergal reservoir (Seville) in the framework of a national Project. Since that time, I am doing research and teaching at the Department of Ecology and at the Water Research Institute of the University of Granada.
